Hi, I am not a medical expert, could this influenza get as bad as the Spanish flu of the last century?
Is there any real agent that could halt it in its track?
I know there are a few antiviral drugs, but could the AIDS drugs be used for the general population if this outbreak became a global pandemic?
How much of a difference would modern medical intervention be when compared to the Spanish flu?
Could millions die if this got out of control?
How would it affect air traffic between continents?
What would the effect be on sports events with crowds of spectators
How fast could a vaccine be be created by the medical teams?
The virus could mutate and become weak or it could mutate into different deadly viruses for which humans have no protection?
Must we stop eating pork?
I think the masks presently used by people are useless against a tiny virus, it would have no problem getting through into the body
How long would it take to make and produce real effect masks that no virus could penetrate?
This outbreak could advance and spread in biblical proportions or we might wake up and hear the whole thing was now under control
Would the authorities hold back the truth from the population if they knew for sure this was an outbreak of deadly biblical apocalyptic pandemic proportions?
The could lock themselves up and watch the rest of us breath our last from the safety of their virus secure places of domain?
Would they do this if the above happened?
If the truth was the worst possible will the authorities tell us or just keep quite because telling us will not alter the outcome?
I could add much much more, but hope none of these questions are ever asked!!
